i didnt use the albini on this one - just went for the stock version but really like it. I have the kit to make and albini one which I will make and compare see which i like best.

Your pedal sounds and looks awesome and love the mod but being a relative newby I dont quite understand once you have built the board how you get the LFO to flash the LED -is it wired into the board. just starting to make a karate shop and would love to be able to understand how to add your mod to it. I can see how the LDR is wired in on your diagram. :)

This is another Madbean build - this one didnt go together as well as some of the other builds wasnt really happy with the box or wiring but it does now work well. just had to play about with it as kept making loud popping noise but think it was grounding issue as after resoldering and checking seemed to work fine. I have the bits to make another one which I may do later in year and have better go at the graphics and wiring but still have many more to build as i love the frustration of solving problems and satisfaction when they fire up. The graphic is a Bee with a guitar but all got out of line really and cant really see it much- staying with the bee Theme of course.

Just finished a madbean build double flush wah. Really enjoyed building this one as went together like a dream. No issues fired up like a dream. LED looks great so just sharing the build to add to my collection. thanks madbean. Keepiong with my other pedal Bee theme this is Bee wah.

Yes the IC is a tl072. The pins WEre just something I thought I would try to get a nice clean connection with the PCB and the wiring. it also made it easier when I was testing the guts to clip crocodile clips onto. The silk screen layout was just a matter of printing out the layout t the same time s the PCB was printed for etching and once etched overlays on at he component side of the PCB. It takes a little fiddling about but once you marry it up and stick it to PCB I then lathered it and then drilled it. I thought it just made it look at little more professional. Thanks for the kind remarks.

Build Reports / Blues breaker pedal build

This was made from PCB layout for a Replica Marshall vintage blues breaker pedal. I always fancied building one so I etched the board and made no alterations from the general gadgets site. Came out pretty well with thanks to some graphics from my mate kev. It has nice bright white LED which looks great. Gigged it Friday night and it sounds awesome - best sounding build yet so thought I would share. Mate wants one now so good job I etched a spare board. Enjoy

fantastic paint job and neat PCB wiring-excellent-thanks for sharing

I Used a 1K A Pot for the Fuzz and a 470K A pot for the volume (and 22K for Bias control). I find the Pot for the Bias needs to be about half way round before it starts to get a great sound. I have read some posts where you can reduce this by using resistor on the Pot but didnt want the hastle and you can fine tune it of just leave it to suit your needs. Works for me anyway and thanks for your great posts-its appreciated. Off to make harmonic perculator and see how that comes out>

Build Reports / Mangler with Mods
« on: January 07, 2012, 03:03:45 AM »
My most recent build and again using a Madbean mangler PCB for the Fuzz face type pedal. I saw that someone had made some modifications on other posts so tried a few myself. Firstly the bias I wired into a 22K pot so that I can play around with the bias anytime. This seems to work quite well. I then replaced the C3 with a DPDT on on footswitch again like I did with the Grapevine and put 2 different capacitors on the Switch so that I can switch to get more top end if I want. This was enjoyable build and used some of then other suggested posts (like the 100pf ceramic cap on the input) all from other people posts so thanks to those people. The box decal is normal transfer and extra bright LED on front to finish it off. Wiring seems to be getting neater and I have started covering joints with heat sink (especially when wanted to ensure I dont mix wires I put colour heatsink over which represents the colour in the madbean build notes.) Works for me anyway. I may post some old builds later that were first attempts with very long wiring and bit shoddie builds but show how you can progress if you stick at it. thanks

Build Reports / chunk chunk - Dr Boogie
« on: January 07, 2012, 02:48:12 AM »
This is a build with a mad bean PCB. I spent more time on the wiring having read several other posts about making them. I had no problems building it although I do get a little interferance as its such high gain pedal. I ended up preferring to bias it by ear but may look at shielding the cable as suggested in other posts if only I could be sure how its done. The decal are from tranfer kit and my only mistake was the Dr Nasty where I put the wording in the wrong place and ended up changing it to an arrow. Never mind it makes it one of a kind. No mods on this one-straight build and I am pleased with the end result. Just some work on reducing the slight backround hiss. Wiring improved from last builds I hope and having brough some better tools the benefit is noticable. The red covering to the left of the shot is where I put in a battery snap just incase I want it in the future and have just covered it with heat sink while not being used. thanks

Build Reports / Grapevine build with Mods
« on: January 07, 2012, 02:30:37 AM »
I havent posted any of my builds for a while so i thought I would post the latest builds and some of my earlier builds. This is the third Grapevine I have built. This version like the last has the Rock/rawk toggle replaced by and on on DPDT foot switch. It just means I can change from one to the other without using my hands which is handy. This was the last large PCB I made. They are a bit big but I have progressed since making these ones and have made smaller PCB. I have attached copy of the insides but I wired in the PCB before I photographed it so I have also attached a photo of the PCB before I wired it in. You can see how big it is and my wiring has moved on since this build which you can see from some of the other newer builds which i will be posting.
I have a Chunk Chunk (Dr Boogie) and Mangler with Mods which i will also post over next few days...

Thanks for the comments. I have now made another one made with smaller housing and great graphics shown on another grapevine post. I traded the toggle switch for a second footswitch on request of a mate and it does seem to be more practical for the gigging musician. Getting into the design stuff now with couple of basic overdrives ready to box that are based on the  DOD overdrive 250.

I didnt get the chance to photo the inside before my mate wanted it to take it away use. I am building another one for another mate which will have slightly different design on front but when done i will make sure I post the inside in future. I will be wiring the next one with the duel footswitch as its better for practical use than the toggle switch version. Its a shame as I did actually work hard to make sure the wires were all platted and that it did look really neat but Ill post it on the next one.

As for the request for a sound bite. I still have another grapevine (my first build) which wasnt so neat inside and has the toggle switch as opposed to the footswitch. It does have the same awesome sound so I will try and sort sound bite out when i can. I am happy to put some shots of the insides of my first build all be it not as good as this second build shown. (I have posted my first build on madbean site)

This is my second Grapevine, built this for a mate and changed the toggle switch for a footswitch for better control. It sounds great and had no problems with this one, it worked first time. The gun idea was a friends who has done lots of different designs for my future pedals so watch this space. Lots more projects ready to go so watch my posts!

Build Reports / Grapevine - First Madbean build
« on: August 29, 2011, 02:33:09 PM »
This is my first on forum and having just made my very own Grapevine - etched PCB from the data all from madbean and used some of the other advice already posted to resolve some of the ground problems and dare i say it some resistors in the wrong place.

Excellent learning - next time PCB will be smaller and will spend more time on the end box and neater wiring but works well awesome sound. Have managed to get a Chunk Chunk PCB from Madbean and a fuzz so they will be my next projects. Didn't realise what great fun it was to make your own after owning several BOSS pedals but much more satisfying making your own.
